design X saber : a design and star wars mashup

DESIGN X SABER is a Y Studios project inspired by the iconic Star Wars lightsaber and some of Y Studios’ design heroes – Zaha Hadid, Charles and Ray Eames, Issey Miyake, Edith Heath and Dieter Rams. It envisions what a saber would look like if Y Studios and our design heroes designed it. All sabers featured in DESIGN X SABER are designed by Y Studios.

This is our homage to them.

The project is presented in a series of six episodes featuring one designer per episode, and a short documentary (below) that shows the idea and process behind the work.
